"PARAMOUNT" is my thesis film finished in School of Visual Arts MFA Computer Art.
“Paramount” is a short 3D animation that shows the affection, connection and complex feelings between a mother and daughter during a specific dramatic time. Through closeness, misunderstanding, fighting, separating, regret, missing, and reunion, the story explores the connection between love and hate, cherishing and regret. In the story, a daughter Lan looks for her mother Mei ten years after the Second Sino-Japanese War (1937) which split them up. She goes back to the old abandoned “Paramount” theater in Shanghai and finds someone lives there: her mother. “Paramount” depicts the resonant feeling state that occurs when memory-drenched ambience calls to mind the the feelings of a precious relationship.
